Our Story


Catherine Gannon, then a tax solicitor at a large US law firm, looks out from their ivory tower and spots a gap in the market. This gap is the lack of high quality legal advice for entrepreneurs and SMEs. Research quickly reveals that SMEs generate most of the UK’s GNP – far more than the quoted sector produces. Many larger law firms claim to service SMEs but in reality smaller businesses are pushed to the bottom of the pile. The opportunity has crystallised – the delivery of top quality legal advice SMEs need within a sensible price bracket.


Our firm is up and trading as a paperless office with scope to work remotely: innovative for 2002. Our technology attracted sharp, experienced solicitors frustrated by the major firms’ practices, processes and politics.


The corporate team starts its expansion.


Administration costs cut by 50%, due to technology investment and outsourcing strategy.


Alex Kleanthous joins as first dispute resolution/litigation partner.


Helen Curtis joins and manages the corporate team which completes its first £20 million+ company sale transaction. Both Helen Curtis and Catherine Gannon take the lead.


John Deane joins to run the commercial and technology teams. The firm now comprises six partners across its core disciplines backed by a brilliant team.


A very good year with a strong deal flow. Proud that we had a sufficient development team to cope

Story so far

The original business vision remains. Of course it is not plain sailing. But, therein lies the respect for those braving the business world. Empathy is the core. Hence Project Cub – our initiative to assist incubators with commercial tips and introductions for growing a business.
